TOPIC: SHD Manual needs updating

SHD Manual needs updating 1 week 2 days ago #52973

Hi all,

I recently purchased the MiniDSP SHD.

What I find confusing is that the Manual (www.minidsp.com/images/documents/SHD%20S...%20User%20Manual.pdf) references many times the WiFi attachment as the WI-DG product. However the SHD comes with a USB Wifi 2.4GHz adaptor (which is not the WI-DG).

So why does the Manual refer to the WI-DG and when is it expected to be updated?

Thanks!

The provided WiFi adapter ('dongle') and Wi-DG perform different roles rather than one replacing the other. The provided adapter is for streaming whereas the WI-DG is for wireless connection for the plugin.

Thanks for that. Seems disappointing that MiniDSP would release a WiFi supported amplifier that needs to be controlled via a USB cable out of the box :(

Having suffered the clunky Wi-DG and sold it I'm very happy with USB control.

This is probably overkill for most but I have a 2014 mac mini that is connected via USB to a miniSHARC and a SHD Studio. This allows me to use VNC to wirelessly connect to the mac mini via my laptop or phone and control the miniDSPs. This isn't the primary use of the mac mini but it is a nice feature to have.
